Canada’s Biome Grow Creating a VR Library of Company’s Cannabis Strains

Published by , July 23, 2018 2:35 pm

(NowToronto/Lifestyle) Weed VR, a virtual reality dispensary for cannabis, was launched on 4/20 last year by Toronto-based Occupied VR. In June, Weed VR – which stands for Weed Virtual Retail – was acquired by Biome Grow, a new company that owns Highland Grow, a licensed producer in Nova Scotia with the intention of creating a virtual library of the company’s strains.
Part of the appeal for consumers purchasing at dispensaries has been the ability to touch and smell the product they’re considering buying. By using hand-held controllers, browsing buyers can pick up the virtual bud, examine it from all angles and further inspect it using a magnifying glass. The program includes a floating menu with information on the THC and CBD content of the strain, its scent and taste profiles, as well as its typical effects when consumed.
